Peace Treaty will Fail!

Prophecy Update: The Peace Treaty that will fail! 6/27/19

I am always concerned when a president tries to bring peace between Israel and the Palestinians. It has failed every time and it will fail again. I want to give you some historical background of past peace deals that have failed. Then I will look at the new one that will also fail. The major reason they fail is because they do not have the Word of God as the basis and foundation of their deal. The Bible is very clear that no one, besides God, will bring peace between Israel and the world. Jesus is the one who will bring the peace and He will do it by war!! He will come with a rod of iron, and fight at Armageddon, and win. Everyone will bow down to Him. Psalm 110 is repeated many times in the NT and the heart of the passage is war. Jesus and the Father will fight. In vs.5 God says, He will shatter kings in the day of His wrath! The list of peace deals comes from a history website. I will site the peace deal and then comment on them.

UN Security Council Resolution 242, 1967
“Resolution 242 was passed on 22 November 1967 and embodies the principle that has guided most of the subsequent peace plans – the exchange of land for peace.”
Israel is being asked to go back to the 1967 lines in every peace deal and it will never happen. God promised to give this land back to Israel and they will not relinquish it. Amos 9:15, ‘I will also plant them on their land and they will not again be rooted out from their land which I have given to them.’

Camp David Accords, 1978
“Under Jimmy Carter, the US oversaw the first Arab-Israeli peace treaty. There were several peace plans following the 1967 war, but nothing happened until after the 1973 Yom Kippur or October War. There followed a new mood for peace, as shown by a historic visit to Jerusalem by the Egyptian President, Anwar Sadat, in November 1977.”
After 1967, the Arab nations prepared to go to war again and kill the Jews. They failed in 73 and realized they were not going to beat Israel in a conventional war. Since 1973, the way to beat Israel was through terrorism. (Assymetrical Warfare which they learned from communist Russia and China) Anwar Sadat made peace with Israel and was assassinated by the Muslim Brotherhood for it.

The Madrid Conference, 1991
“This conference, co-sponsored by the US and the Soviet Union, was designed to follow up the Egypt-Israel treaty (1978) by encouraging other Arab countries to sign their own agreements with Israel.”
This peace deal went nowhere. Now the Muslims had the plan to use terrorism against the Jews. Israel went through many intifadas, these caused them to become hardened and protect themselves from the murderers. The Soviet Uniion supported every group who would kill Jews. Their money and influence fueled Arab aggression against Israel. Just as they did it then, so Russia is fueling the Muslim hatred of Israel again!

Oslo Agreement, 1993
“Israel and the PLO came to terms, but Oslo’s promise was not realized. The Oslo negotiations tried to tackle the missing element of all previous talks – a direct agreement between Israelis and Palestinians, represented by the PLO. Its importance was that there was finally mutual recognition between Israel and the PLO.”
This had to be the worse peace deal in history. When we say peace, peace, when there is no peace, this peace deal is that in spades. The PLO lied constantly and encouraged more terrorism against the Jewish state. Jerusalem was still on the table when Israel said it will never be on the table! Just as the Bible predicted.

Camp David, 2000
“Various attempts were made (including at Taba in 1995, Wye River in 1998 and Sharm el-Sheikh in 1999) to speed up the withdrawal and self-government provisions of Oslo. Then in 2000, President Bill Clinton sought to address the final status issues – including borders, Jerusalem and refugees – that Oslo had left aside for later negotiation.”
This peace deal was a joke—Ehud Barak tried to give away 92% of Judea and Samaria and that was not enough for Yassir Arafat. Israel would have withdrawn from 63 settlements and moved out of their land, land God gave them. God cursed this from the beginning and it failed miserably. Barak even tried to give away Jerusalem.

Arab Peace Initiative, 2002
“The building of Jewish settlements on occupied land is a key issue in the talks. After the failure of bilateral talks and the resumption of conflict, the Saudi peace plan presented at an Arab summit in Beirut in March 2002 went back to a multi-lateral approach and in particular signaled a desire by the Arab world as a whole to put an end to this dispute.”
This is an important initiative because the Arab nations keep coming back to it and pushing it. The last time was in 2017. Again, it is asking Israel to give up land that they will never give back, including the Golan Heights. This initiative led to the next one in 2003.

Roadmap, 2003
“The roadmap is a plan drawn up by the “Quartet” – the United States, Russia, the European Union and the United Nations. It does not lay down the details of a final settlement, but suggests how a settlement might be approached. It followed efforts made by US Senator George Mitchell to get the peace process back on track in 2001.”
This peace deal led to the Jews moving their people out of the Gaza Strip and giving the Palestinians sovereignty over that strip of land. What did they do with it? They use it as a base to launch attacks on Israel. Hamas rules in the Gaza Strip and they have one goal—kill Jews and destroy the state of Israel. If you remember correctly, as they were forcing Jews out of their homes, God sent a hurricane to the USA called Katrina. President Bush made a fatal mistake—dividing the land of Israel will always bring the judgment of God on a nation.

Annapolis, 2007
“Annapolis envisioned a full peace deal by the end of 2008. Late in his second presidential term, US President George W Bush hosted a conference at the US Naval Academy at Annapolis, Maryland aimed at relaunching the peace process.”
President Bush could not get the hint from God that He did not want a peace deal. Bush had to try one more time and it went up in flames pretty quickly. Thank God that President Obama could not even get a peace conference off the ground. In that time, Israel has grown more settlements and taken over more land. Just as God said would happen! Mahmoud Abbas became the president of the PA in 2005, here is his bio. It tells you all you need to know: Abbas entered graduate studies at the Patrice Lumumba University in Moscow, where he earned a Candidate of Sciences degree (the Soviet equivalent of a PhD). His doctoral dissertation was “The Other Side: The Secret Relationship Between Nazism and Zionism”, a conspiracy theory about the Holocaust.

Trump plan—2019

“The 40-page Peace to Prosperity economic plan, unveiled by the White House on Saturday ahead of this week’s Palestinian-focused economic workshop in Bahrain, is packed with proposals for unleashing the Palestinians’ potential. It comes with an accompanying 96-page “programs and projects” document that details the plan’s intended $50 billion regional economic overhaul down to the last dollar earmarked for everything from re-training programs to road repairs. But it makes no mention of a two-state solution. It does not speak of Palestinian statehood.” (The Times of Israel)
Why is it that Americans always think that money will solve every problem? President Trump wants to appeal to the needs of the Palestinians when this is a supernatural/spiritual problem. As soon as the plan was published Saturday 6/22, the Palestinians rejected it. Improving the economic status of the Palestinians is not going to stop them from believing in the Muslim teaching on Dar Al Islam and Dar Al Harab! Dar Al Islam is the territory of Allah, conquered by Muslims. Dar Al Harab is the territory of war. All nations that are not under the Muslim Caliphate are the territory of war. It is even doubly bad when Muslim territory was taken over by the infidels. Israeli’s are infidels on Muslim land and need to be eradicated! This belief is part of the deepest convictions of Muslims. No amount of money is going to change that!!
Scripture is clear, the land and the people of Israel are awaiting a final assault from Satan and all of the nations he has inspired. Evil and supernatural forces are working in the nations, inspiring to hate Israel. The video we are watching ends with this quote: “To the Jew who has lost hope in His Covenant keeping creator, to the church who has deflated the crown of the Jewish Messiah, to the Jihadis who are desperate to steal the inheritance from Isaac’s son, this is not the end of the story.” Jesus will save all of Israel and Jerusalem will be the capital of the world.

The Importance of Israel

Prophecy Update: The Importance of Israel June 21, 2019

There has been an amazing move of God the last 200 years. We live in special times when God increased the missionary movement; Christians have reached the whole world with the gospel. The ability of Christians to use TV, Radio, Internet, Satellites, and other forms of media to spread the gospel has reached into the darkest and deepest evil nations. China cannot keep out the gospel, North Korea, the darkest of places has not been able to keep out the gospel. At the same time as this was happening, God began to fulfill His goal of bringing Israel back to her land. God is in the process of fulfilling things which He spoke about 3500 years ago. The two most important dates are 1948 and 1967. 1948 began the process of Israel becoming a nation. They declared it at that time, but they still have to conquer much of the land promised to them. God said that the reestablishment of Israel as a nation would come with war and suffering and great victories. The second date, 1967 is when Israel conquered and secured to themselves Jerusalem. God promised that Jerusalem would be the greatest source of conflict with the nations. This is what is happening today. The next few weeks we will be studying the place of Israel in prophecy and why it is important for Christians to support Israel.

Aliyah is probably not a word you are familiar with. It means the ingathering of Jews to the land of Israel by God. Israel, the land, and the ingathering of Jews is the last great witness of God to the nations. This is on our heavenly Fathers heart today and He said in Is.43:5-6, “Do not fear, for I am with you; I will bring your offspring from the east, And gather you from the west. “I will say to the north, ‘Give them up!’ And to the south, ‘Do not hold them back.’ Bring My sons from afar And My daughters from the ends of the earth.” This has been happening and there is more to come. Unfortunately, it is happening with a lot of conflict.

The war to end all wars was a term for the First World War of 1914–1918. Originally idealistic, it is a dream and I think that it is the introduction to the end days. It was at this time that people began crying peace, peace, when there was no peace. It was a time when Jews were going back to their land, the land of Israel. The promise of God had in fact begun to be fulfilled in 1880. The rise of Zionism in the 1800’s was a signal to Satan that God was moving in the hearts of Jews to go home and settle the land of Israel. Satan also saw the rise of Christians who were teaching prophecy and the importance of Israel and the return! Satan worked his strategy to destroy Israel before God could fulfill His plan. Just like Exodus 1, Pharaoh under the inspiration of Satan tried to destroy the nation of Israel and failed, so Satan would fail again in the 20th century. Satan tried to destroy Israel at least six times in the 20th century—all failed!

The Bible describes for us how Babylon and Rome both drove the Jews from their land. It was fulfilling Bible prophecy. God prophesied that when Israel became a nation, they would disobey Him and He would remove them from the land. Dt.4:25-28, 28:62-67. When Israel is out of their land, God promised that the land would not work so that no one could settle the land. Many nations tried to settle the Promised Land and they all failed. Crops would not grow, the land was barren, few would live there. God also prophesied that He would bring the Jews back to the land, then the land would work again. When Jews came to the land, all of a sudden it produced fruit and vegetables. This process was described in Lev.26:32-33 when it says, “and I will make the land desolate so that your enemies who settle in it shall be appalled over it. You, however I will scatter among the nations and will draw out a sword after you, as your land becomes desolate and your cities become desolate.”

Wherever the Jews settled, they were persecuted. Here is a brief outline of how some of the nations would kick the Jews out of their lands, steal their land, money, and kill them.

Britain: The Edict of Expulsion was a royal decree issued by King Edward I of England on 18 July 1290 expelling all Jews from the Kingdom of England. Edward advised the sheriffs of all counties he wanted all Jews expelled by no later than All Saints’ Day (1st November) that year. That is a little ironic, no saint would ever have such hatred in their heart for Jews or any unbeliever. Paul had the opposite attitude in Romans 9 when he said he would give up his salvation and be accursed for the sake of his countrymen, Jews. so they could be saved!

France: During the first half of the 13th century, the attitude of the Church towards Jews hardened from disapproval to loathing. On 22 July, 1306 King Philip IV of France expelled all Jews from his kingdom.

Germany: The First Crusade (1096-1099) began an era of persecution of Jews in Germany. Entire communities, like those of Trier, Worms, Mainz and Cologne, were murdered.

Russia: In the late 19th century and early 20th century, Jews were beaten and killed and their property destroyed in government-sanctioned pogroms led by a group called the Black Hundreds. In 1882, the Russian government passed its notorious anti-Semitic “May laws” that drove Jews off their farms and forced them to live in town ghettos. Violent pogroms against the Jews erupted in the late 19th and early 20th centuries as a way of dealing with the “Jewish problem.” The pogroms began during a period of repression and discontent when many people blamed their problems on the Jews. Local authorities fanned these sentiments as the Jews made convenient scapegoats. Among the peasantry Jews were regarded as money-hungry shopkeepers and capitalists. Authorities viewed them as political agitators.

Spain: “In the same month in which their Majesties [Ferdinand and Isabella] issued the edict that all Jews should be driven out of the kingdom and its territories, in the same month they gave me the order to undertake with sufficient men my expedition of discovery to the Indies. So begins Christopher Columbus’s diary.” The expulsion that Columbus refers to was so cataclysmic an event that ever since, the date 1492 has been almost as important in Jewish history as in American history. On July 30 of that year, the entire Jewish community, some 200,000 people, were expelled from Spain.

Satan is inspiring his people to express three equally evil attitudes towards Jews.

Anti-Semitism is the hostility to or prejudice against Jews.

Anti-Judaism is the opposition to Torah thru Abraham and Moses. Jesus worshipped God using the grace and teaching of the Old Testament in His ministry; this is the way it should have been expressed. Jesus practice of biblical Judaism is rejected by anti-Judaiac Christians. These are the people in churches who teach that the Old Testament is not for Christians. Paul in Romans 11:1-2 says that God has not rejected His people Israel. Many in the churches have said, God has rejected Israel. While there has been substantial support of Israel from evangelical Christianity, “nevertheless, a vociferous segment has opposed any acknowledgement whereby God continues to have present covenantal interest in His ancient people.” (Future Israel pg.2)

Anti-Zionism is opposition to the establishment of the nation of Israel.

Today, being against the nation of Israel has become a way for people to express their anti-Semitic attitudes. To mask hatred of Jews behind criticism of the nation is a new form of anti-Semitism. Christian anti-Semitism always tried to dissolve Israel into Christianity. Today, the goal is to destroy the nation of Israel.

The word used for the church eliminating Israel from the plan of God is called replacement theology. It is also called supercessionism, meaning that God is done with the Jew, Israel, and Judaism. They teach that there are no promises for Israel in the Old or New Covenants. The film series we are watching covers the history of anti-Semitism. This five-part series explores the history and theology of the enduring controversy over the Jewish people, the Land of Israel, and the city of Jerusalem. Only three of the films have been produced and the fourth one is coming out this year.

The first film is called the “Great Rage.” “Throughout centuries, judenhass (German for Jew hatred) has found expression in political, religious and social contexts spanning continents and cultures without discernible cause or correlation. The Great Rage is the first installment in this five-part series, which assesses these historical expressions of Jew-hatred and grapples with the modern progression of this international rage in present-day.

There are three great mountain tops in history regarding the rage against Jews: Pagan rage, Christian rage, and Islamic rage. Chapter one called the ‘Goyim’ is about Germany and the rage against Jews in the 1930-1945. The Soviet Union collaborated with Hitler until the Germans betrayed them. Both the Nazis and the Russians equally were complicit in killing Jews. What is worse, most of Europe appeased Hitler in killing Jews and many joined in to help. Poland is one such nation and they ended up being like Haman in the book of Esther. Today we have Hamas and Iran preaching every week that they will wipe out the Jews from the earth. The fellowship of hatred is before us in our day. Please pray and stand with the Lord and His love for His people Israel. Romans 11 says it like this: vs.28 “From the standpoint of the gospel they are enemies for your sake, but from the standpoint of God’s choice they are beloved for the sake of the fathers”—God will save Israel and He loves them!

Israel: Promised Nation

Prophecy Update: Prophets speak about reestablishing the state of Israel 6/15/19

I have been meditating on the scriptures that teach about Israel becoming a nation again. There are two main parts to this return to the land. The time before the Day of the Lord which is a time of planting the seeds of the promise. This is a time of growth, pulling weeds and bearing fruit. The second part is the Day of the Lord when the nations fulfill their hatred that was evident and working to keep the Jews out of the land in the first part of the fulfillment. The Day of the Lord will lead to the salvation of Israel and the judgment of the nations. It will usher in the Kingdom of Messiah Jesus on the earth. I will give the scripture verses, and comment on them, you will have to look up the verses. I hope this will increase your faith in God and teach you the promises of God.

Isaiah 62:1-7 This is a passage that I have been praying for 25 years. I joined the Jerusalem Prayer Team 25 years ago and have not stopped praying this prayer. It is about God reestablishing Jerusalem as the spiritual and political center for the whole earth. The Jews will marry the land and God will make Jerusalem His capital on the earth once again. Everything that has happened since 1948 has been setting up this prophecy, God even made several nations declare that Jerusalem is the eternal capital of Israel. Moldavia was the latest country to move their embassy which they announced yesterday. 6/12/19

Jeremiah 30:1-7, 31:10. God tells us that He will restore the fortunes of Israel. It is happening, especially the last ten years. Israel is rich and powerful, a result of the blessing of God. When this is happening, the Day of the Lord is going to take place. In this passage God calls it ‘the time of Jacobs trouble.’ The current tension in the land with the nations, Palestinians, Iranians, are all setting up wars and the time of Jacobs trouble. Believers like myself have been reminding the nation that God is gathering Israel like a shepherd who keeps His flocks—the nation is not listening!

Ezekiel 36:1-21, God is very clear in this passage that the nations are gloating over possessing the land of Israel. God calls this land His land and He promises to give it to His covenant people, Israel. God also promises to punish all of the nations who appropriated the land for themselves. That includes the Palestinian authority who is pushing war against Israel this very moment. The key word is: ‘mountains of Israel,’ these mountains are called the West Bank by those who have appropriated Gods land for themselves. The world is standing with the Palestinians and the two state solution. Those who push the two state position are appropriating the land of Israel for the Palestinians. The land is called Judea/Samaria by those who know the Bible. Our government is agreeing that Israel can annex part of the land for themselves. God says He will give it all to Israel. This is the current tension we are in!

Daniel 9:20-27, 12:1, This is a very important passage. It lays out the timing of what is happening from Israel point of view. Israel is going to face a seven year period when antichrist will make a firm covenant for seven years. We are in the time before this prophecy being fulfilled. A time of distress like no other time in history.

Hosea 14:4-7, We live in a time when many in churches say that God does not love the Jews and will not fulfill His promises to them. This passage begs to differ—God promises to heal, love, and bless their land again. Israel will take root He says, this happened in 1948 and has consistently grew for 71 years.

Joel 3:1-3, 20-21, This passage is very clear. God is going to punish the nations for how they treated Israel. Russia, England, Germany, France, all of the Muslim nations should repent now before this day comes because it will be very bad! Two sins are highlighted, scattering Israel and dividing up the land. Our own presidents have committed this sin. The promise to us is that Judah will be inhabited forever and God will avenge the blood of His people Jews. The Holocaust will be paid for!!

Amos 9:13-15, This is one of my favorite passages regarding Israel. It is very clear, short, and to the point. The land will flourish, be restored, and rebuilt. God promises that He will plant Israel in her land and they will never be uprooted again. Take that UN! Take that Palestinian Authority! Take that Iran! Planting, cultivating, and bearing fruit are the hallmarks of what has been happening the last 71 years in Israel. The settlements in Judea Samaria are testimony of this and 60% of the West Bank is inhabited by Jews. Soon, it will be 100% because the God of prophecy is never wrong and never lies! Ambassador Friedman said in Israel this week that Israel has the right to annex parts of Judea and Samaria, for that the Palestinian Authority want to bring him up on war crimes!

Micah 7:14-20, God promises to shower His love on His people Israel. When He gives the land back to Israel it is a fulfillment of His promises and love!

Zephaniah 3:14-20, God promises to be among His people Israel when He gives them their land and He fights for them. God will be called the victorious warrior among His people. The question comes in this passage: do you grieve about the appointed feasts? The feasts of the Lord are prophetic and are being fulfilled in true history. We are in the feast of Pentecost at the moment and I celebrate what God did at that time; God gave Moses His law, gave them their food, and began fulfilling this feast at the time of the Holy Spirit coming down in Acts 2. It will be fulfilled in a unique way when God fulfills the New Covenant for Israel in the future. God says in this passage that He will deal with Israel’s oppressors and it will cover all of the earth. Many of the prophecies say that this will cover the whole earth. The judgments of Revelation cover the whole earth. So there is a connection between this passage and Revelation.

Haggai 2:6-9, God is going to rebuild the Temple and fill it with His glory. The nations will be judged and their wealth will come to Jerusalem under our King Jesus! The whole earth at that time, the time of the Millennium kingdom, peace will reign.

Zechariah 12:1-3, Ch.14-God is even now causing the nations to lose their minds regarding Jerusalem. No other city causes more division then Jerusalem. Eventually, every nation will listen to Satan and fight over Jerusalem and the land of Israel. They will lose and Jesus will set up His kingdom. Today, the UN and the International Criminal Court are working to force Israel and the Unted States to give up half of Jerusalem to the Palestinians. That will never happen without war—the war of Armageddon. You see, this tension today will carry on all the way to the end of the Tribulation period.

Daniel 2+7—God describes the whole period of the “Times of the Gentiles.” The last empire is the one we see rising. It will come in a time of war when antichrist initiates a war according to Revelation 6+ Daniel 7:23, “Thus He said, the fourth beast will be a fourth kingdom on the earth which will be different from all the other kingdoms and will devour the whole earth and tread it down and crush it.”

Why does this kingdom have to devour, crush, tread it down? Maybe because the world is resisting a one world government. That describes our day!!

The nations will control part of Jerusalem until God removes the church in the rapture and then the battle for Jerusalem is on for good. The last 7 years will have increasing tension until war comes. Today the tension is already building towards Israel building the temple as they exercise sovereignty over the city. The fact that Israel exercises sovereignty enrages Satan and his minions. Israel routinely tells the UN to take a hike. We live in the time of the rise of the one world government, one world currency, and amazing technologies to pull off such a thing. What is next? Something will happen in the world to cause it to institute a one world government. I think the rapture is the most logical event.

Antisemitism is at an all time high in the world. During Jerusalem Day, I watched the marches in the key capital cities of the world and the signs and chants were despicable. They were all like Nazi marches in the 1930’s crying for the death of Jews. The European nations should be ashamed of themselves; America should wake up to the Jew haters in our country. Christians have a great deal of responsibility to stand against this sin in our culture. Because of this, I want to start a class on the prophetic nature of the nation of Israel.

We will watch a video series called Covenant and Controversies. They currently have three films to watch and study the importance of Israel. Go to covenantandcontroversy.com to access the films. We will watch them and I will teach from them. I will prepare lessons and information to show how prophecy is being fulfilled. Hope you can join us.

Vacation Thoughts

Prophecy Update: The Final Peace 6/6/19

I am enjoying rest and relaxation on vacation. It has given me time to reflect and think about the days in which we live. The book of Titus has been my obsession on vacation. When I go on vacation, I love to get up early and pray and study Gods Word. Titus fascinates me and I want to share with you some of my thoughts

Titus was on the Island of Crete and Titus was left there by Paul. Acts does not record when they went there but Titus was to finish what they started. The island was conquered by the Romans in 69BC and they ruled the island for 400 years. An interesting verse is in 1:12-13, it says, “One of themselves, a prophet of their own, said, “Cretans are always liars, evil beasts, lazy gluttons. This testimony is true. For this reason reprove them severely so that they may be sound in the faith.” Imagine going to a culture described like this? Jesus said in Matt.24 and Luke 17 that the last days would be like the days of Noah and Lot. Those were days filled with violence, murder, and every kind of evil according to Genesis 6. Jude says that Lot lived in the days of sexual immorality. This describes the day in which we live.

I opened the newspaper this morning and I was greeted with murder, sexual immorality, and down right hatred for what is true, right, and good. Here is the headline: Officials Deny Mass Killers Sick Twisted Fame. This is referring to the killing of 12 people in Virginia. The murderer worked at the place that he gunned down his coworkers. What is the answer for this hatred, violence by the governor of Virginia? Get rid of guns. Seriously, limiting guns will not change the heart of man. The heart is deceitfully wicked, God wants a change in the heart. It is the refusal of the governor of Virginia to see that there is a spiritual war going on. Satan is inspiring people to do all kinds of evil, and just like in the days of Noah, no one will listen to the Godly, Righteous, leaders who are warning them of the coming judgment. This governor is the one that we should kill children who survive an abortion. Jesus came preaching ‘Repent for the Kingdom of Heaven is at Hand’ and they rejected Him. Noah came preaching that judgment was coming and they rejected him. Today, many Christians are saying ‘repent for the judgment is coming.’ They are not listening. Jesus predicted that the judgment would come upon them unawares because they do not listen to God’s representatives.

Miley Cyrus was also in the paper. Her new album has songs that glorify sexual immorality and drugs. One of them is called DREAM, which stands for “drugs rule everything around me.” Today, you have to be pro LGBT to be accepted in Hollywood and the music industry. These are the days of Lot for sure. Another pro LGBT singer, Katy Perry has a new album. She likes to say she grew up in the church but she has rejected the bigotry of the church because they do not accept homosexuality. As an American Idol judge, she likes to spread this message. The battle lines have been drawn in the church—the apostasy is in full bloom.

How about this stat—80% of Mexican territory is controlled by the drug cartels. Drugs alter the mind and destroy the body. Jesus warned us that if we destroy our bodies He will destroy us.(1Cor.3:17) This evil must be stopped on our border. God told the Levites how He wished someone would shut the gates of the Temple when they had defiled the Temple courts. I wish someone would shut our border so we can save the people being used by the terrorists, drug lords, politicians who just wish to make a buck off of others despair.

Then there is Israel! Since the Holocaust, never has the Jew been under so much threat of annihilation. Israel celebrated the capture of Jerusalem in 1967 and the world marched to kill the Jews. The marches in the cities of Europe were disgusting. Calling for the murder of every Jew in the world. Chicago and New York had marches that rivaled anything that happened in Paris, Berlin, or London. The Satanic inspired holocaust is alive and well in the Al Quds day marches where you will find chants, posters, and pronouncements of ‘kill the Jews.’ On this weekend in Chicago, 52 people were shot and 10 died. Connection? Of course there is a connection. Anytime a city like Chicago advances the cause of antisemitism, it will be judged by the living God. This is a spiritual battle that started when God made a covenant with Abraham and chose Isaac.

God’s love for Israel and the land of Israel is causing him to bring His people back. It is the election of God to fulfill His covenant. Satan hates it and is doing all he can to pervert this truth in the church, in the world, and kill Israel. God has given us watershed moments in history to teach us: the flood, the Exodus, the Days of Elijah, and Jesus death and resurrection. The watershed moment for us is May 14th 1948, because everything changed on that date. Satan could not kill off the Jew with Hitler, so now he has to use a new group to pick up the hatred and carry it forward. That group is Islamic Jihadism. Five Jihadist nations attacked Israel on the most important day May 14th 1948! The next day that will change everything will be the Day of the Lord! That day is coming fast.

Leading up to the Day of the Lord is the reestablishment of Jerusalem as the eternal capital of Israel. That happened this past year and it is a game changer. Zechariah 12 teaches us that it will lead to Armageddon. The only subject given more time in the prophets over the Day of the Lord is the days that lead up to that day! We are living in the days leading up to the Day of the Lord, the signs of the times. Jewish history tells us that God will bring His people into the land in the last days. It is happening folks and there is a lot more to do.

In the Judean wilderness, God did many miracles talked about in the scriptures. Today, God is bringing His people back-it is truly a miracle. Even though Israel is strong, rich and powerful, the prophets tell us that the ‘time of Jacobs trouble’ will happen. The Jews are still being killed in Europe, Angela Merkel of Germany just said that there is no safe place for Jews in Germany. Jews will be leaving Europe and America because of the persecution and hatred of the Jews. The one who teaches hatred of Jews is the same one who teaches hatred of Jesus and His people the Church. The Church looks forward to the Rapture and Israel looks forward to the suffering of the ‘Time of Jacobs trouble.” The worse thing that the church can do with regard to future suffering is to put their heads in the sand. God has a controversy with His people Israel and with all of the nations of the world. It will bring judgment on the nations and at the end of the judgment, all of Israel will be saved. Here is a few verses about this:

Is.34:8 tells us, “For the LORD has a day of vengeance, A year of recompense for the cause of Zion.” Micah 6:2 says, Listen, you mountains, to the indictment of the LORD, And you enduring foundations of the earth, Because the LORD has a case against His people; Even with Israel He will dispute.” Jer25:31, Listen, you mountains, to the indictment of the LORD, And you enduring foundations of the earth, Because the LORD has a case against His people; Even with Israel He will dispute. Joel 3:2, I will gather all the nations And bring them down to the valley of Jehoshaphat. Then I will enter into judgment with them there On behalf of My people and My inheritance, Israel, Whom they have scattered among the nations;
And they have divided up My land.”
What is the controversy? It is Zion, Jerusalem, and God is not happy with all of the nations who have persecuted the Jews and kept them from their land and their capital city. God will judge all of the nations over this and bring them to Armageddon for death!

The day that is coming is unlike any that came before it. No church, no spiritual insight can thwart this day or prevent it. Israel today is like Masada. The land is a protection for them. Just as the Romans came for the Jews at Masada, so Satan and his minions in the EU, UN, USA, Russia, Iran, and other nations will come for Israel. They will fail and only God will rescue Israel at that time. Then Israel’s rightful King, the Messiah will show up and set everything right in the World.

The Church does not teach its people about Gods will requiring suffering. God is sending suffering today, it is going to get worse. Our God, because He loves ethnic Israel, loves her territory and purpose is going to send the suffering of Revelation on the nations of the world. God made a promise and the world has determined that they will oppose the God of God’s and the King of King’s. (Psalm 2) The Modern return of the Jews to Israel sets up all of the prophecies. How can you flee Jerusalem if your not in Jerusalem? How can Russia and Iran attack Israel unless Israel is in their land and specifically on the Golan Heights? How can Jerusalem be a burdensome stone if Israel does not control their capital city?

Today, we see the miracles of God and the people of the world refuse to acknowledge that God has stepped into history. Just as the people of America need to repent and turn to the Lord, so Israel must turn to the Lord. Just as America refuses to repent which will lead to our destruction, so Israel will face a time of suffering that will cause a repentance. God will give grace to those who escape the sword. America needs to prepare for suffering. God will bring this country under His judicial punishment because it is prophesied. Every nation will turn against the Lord and that includes us. People think that God should never bring judgment. They do not know the Bible—

Today is D-Day and there are many lessons that we can learn from World War 2. One of the lessons is to declare what is good and what is bad, what is right and what is wrong, what is ethical and what is immoral, what is righteous and what is unrighteous. Can you imagine churches inviting the Nazis into their churches to teach the Christians about Nazism, the worship of Hitler? Can you imagine churches inviting Japanese into their churches to teach on the glory of worshipping the Emperor? They did not do this because they could discern between good and evil. After 9/11 churches invited Muslims to speak to Christians, people who teach, kill the Jews. It is in the education literature of the Muslim countries, it is chanted in the streets every Friday in several Muslim nations, and this hatred is spreading to the congress and streets of America. The UN invites Muslim leaders to speak on their hatred of Israel and Jews in New York, how in the world do they let them do this. They honor them and praise them for the murder of Jews and give them a lot of money. Our nations is still being pressured to give the Palestinian Authority money to pay terrorists to kill Jews. It still horrifies me that we did this. Yet, it is all prophesied to happen-it is seting up the ultimate hatred to come—the Antichrist. We live in special days, the Bible talks about these days more than any other. Every day is an adventure, I hope you take heart and live with a passion for Jesus
